Governor Forgets Password Delaying False Alarm Alert In Hawaii


The ballistic missile threat that caused panic throughout Hawaii was a false alarm but it took about 40 minutes to reach phones and 15 minutes to reach social media pages. According to YAHOO, Hawaiian Gov. David Ige forgot his Twitter password and was unable to send out the false alarm post which caused the 15 minute delay. He claims the staff handles his social media accounts:

“I have to confess that I don’t know my Twitter account log-ons and the passwords, so certainly that’s one of the changes that I’ve made. I’ve been putting that on my phone so that we can access the social media directly”

An EMA employee accidentally sent the alert while testing the system.
